Students are expected to stick with one paper topic throughout the semester.
By October 1st, students are to produce a working table of contents and a list of references. Papers are contain a periodization and shall subdivide the region they deal with in sub-regions. Students shall provide a list of keywords.
By November 1st, students are to produce a first draft.
By December 1st students are to produce a second and final draft.
The papers will be comparatively graded, at every one of the three stages; so keeping the deadlines is important.

First claim, by email or verbal, gets the topic; every topic only once.

Many of the topics here are vague. Students can, and are encouraged to, specify topics. Begin with brainstorming : what questions do you want to answer ? What information do you have access to ? Papers should be divided in several chapters and have a concluding analysis. Papers should contain endnotes and references.
